Chelsea line up swap deal for Portuguese sensation !

Chelsea are lining up a deal which would see Valencia defender, Miguel come to Stamford Bridge and Paulo Ferreira leave for The Mestalla according to a report in the Daily Mirror today.

Miguel, 27, joined Valencia in 2005 from Benfica and has been an key part of the Spanish side ever since. Despite only signing a contract in September of this year which should keep him at the club for a further five years, it is thought that the Portuguese international could be making a January exit.

Paulo Ferreira has in my opinion struggled since coming to the Premier League in 2004 from Porto, and I feel that this could be a positive move for his career as the 28 year old is more likely to be able to cope with the physicality of La Liga than the Premier League.

It is thought that as well as Paulo Ferreira that Chelsea are going to have to pay a further £10 million for the right back.



  1. It's a wise decision for both players and teams. Miguel as more pace and as a mora "british" style than Paulo Ferreira, who is more tactitally aware and can be of real use for Valencia.

    They are two very good right backs, but FC Porto's Bosingwa is a lot better. Porto won't let Zé Bos go before the end of the season, and even then onl for a large fee (at least as a Porto fan I hope!), but he's that can of player who would fare well in the Premier League. Is pace is just unbeleviable!
